Along with that precious baby bump, pregnancy stretch marks tend to show up within weeks 13 to 21 of pregnancy. But if you have them, you’re not alone. Up to 90 percent of all expecting mamas get them across their belly, butt, thighs, hips or breasts! Fortunately, there’s a cream for that. These are just a few of our favorites, what products are you currently loving?
Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is the world's leading scar and stretch mark product. Its formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. Bio-Oil contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, which changes the formulation's overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy. This ensures that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed.
